    The old way was 2 L shaped cards that you moved in and out to replicate field of view and cropping. http://www.photographers-resource.co...on_framing.htm
    The perfect photograph has never been captured but I will chase this elusive dream even if it takes me 1/60 sec.

    A full frame is 36mm by 24mm so with that taken into consideration the viewfinder card is double the size.

    So I would say you have not being doing it wrong, but can you imagine trying to look through a viewfinder card 22.3 x 14.9 it would be pretty difficult.
    Thanks for that Paul,

    The reason Iíve been using the sensor-size cut-out was I thought it would help me decide what focal length lenses Iím going to need when I get the camera, as I thought this method would give me a realistic image of what would actually be recorded by the camera; even though initially it does look a small Ďholeí to look through, rightly or wrongly Iíve been sighting things up with it. I wonít know if itís an accurate method until I buy the gear!
